    Thinking about moving to San Francisco..

    Hi guys.

    I live in Brazil, but my life long dream is to work in the gaming industry as a 2D artist. I've been thinking about attending the Atelier in SF, and I thought that might be an awesome stepping stone to achieve that dream.

    So, what you guys recommend? Anyone from SF? I've been told the key is to live in the surrounding cities because of the high living cost in SF itself.

    Yeah if it weren't so expensive I'd be looking into it myself... Seems kinda dangerous to move there without knowing you have a job. But that's just my guess, I don't actually live there.

    I'm just thinking about it, and I'd like to know how is life up there. I'd certainly not risk moving there without a job hehehe.

    I lived in the SF bay area all my life till four years ago. It has one of the highest tax rates in the US. The surrounding areas are just as expensive unless you drive in from the Central Valley or Santa Cruz which is two hours away by car. Sales tax is 9.5 percent and state tax is 10 percent.
    Official unemployment rate is 12 percent and unofficially its higher.
